Dear Pre-K Families,
As we enter into the last week of September, we also enter into our last week of our theme, My 5 Senses. We have had a lot of fun exploring our senses. We have touched many things that feel different in our science center. We have been exploring apples. We used our 5 senses to participate in apple tasting, smelled apple scented play dough, and played with apples in our apple orchard (play house). Last week we worked on color mixing. We read a great book called Mix it Up by Herve Tullet. This is a fun book to read and you can also watch a viewing of it on YouTube. This week we will explore some of Herve Tullet's other books, Let's Play and Press Here. We will continue with colors, shapes, patterns as well as rhyming words and syllables. Our alpha friend is Mr. X-ray Xx.
Thank you to those parents who turned in the questionnaire. If you have not completed it, please turn it is as soon as possible so I will have your results completed before Parent Teacher Conferences. The sign up for Parent Teacher conferences is hanging in the classroom, If the days don't work for you, please let me know and I can schedule something else.
There will be a Halloween Carnival Meeting on Wednesday, September 27th at 6Pm for room parents or anyone interested in being involved in the carnival. Preschool is in charge of the cake walk.
We will celebrate our September Birthdays on Wednesday, thank you to the families of the birthday children for providing a fun snack.
As you can see if you have peeked in the back, our play ground is in the process of being built. The end is near and we look forward to getting the children back to a fun playground. We continue to pray for it's speedy completion.
I will be out of town on Friday so Mrs. Romero and Mrs. Hermosillo will be teaching our class.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
